On a scale of 1 to Madhouse, what should we expect here? How early do you think one should arrive, and if you're not in at 2:00, will people tend to flow in and out or are you probably out of luck?

I mentioned this in a previous post, but forgot to list it earlier. At Cameo:

Dear Friends,

Tonight we invite you in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. to a screening of Daniel Pinchbeck's "2012: A Time for Change".

- Doors at 8pm
- Movie starts at 9pm
- Q an A with Daniel Pinchbeck at 11pm

2012: Time for Change presents an optimistic alternative to apocalyptic doom and gloom. Directed by Emmy Award nominee João Amorim, the film follows journalist Daniel Pinchbeck, author of the bestselling 2012: The Return of Quetzalcoatl, on a quest for a new paradigm that integrates the archaic wisdom of tribal cultures with the scientific method. As conscious agents of evolution, we can redesign post-industrial society on ecological principles to make a world that works for all. Rather than breakdown and barbarism, 2012 heralds the birth of a regenerative planetary culture where collaboration replaces competition, where exploration of psyche and spirit becomes the new cutting edge, replacing the sterile materialism that has pushed our world to the brink.

$5 Cover Charge

Get there early to get a seat.
